Fascinating Education was created by Dr. Margulies. He is a neurologist and understands how the brain works. He knows how we learn, focus, and retrieve information. His approach uses the audio-visual technique. This process uses the right hemisphere of the brain by using its ability to process images better than just reading the text.
Fascinating Chemistry covers four ways that atoms bond to each other to create molecules and how each bond determines the properties of that molecule. The course is divided into 18 lessons with several subtopics for each one. There are some labs included and there are plans for more to be added. You will need a secondary password to access the labs because some of them use harmful chemicals and would need adult supervision.
The Script uses a few of the slides within them. These can be read online or you may print them out to follow along during the lesson.
On the side bar of each lesson the student can access the Lesson Menu and a Glossary. The section the student is currently viewing will turn light blue and the ones already completed will turn grey. The menu makes it very easy for Amber to see where she is in the lesson. Listing each subtopic individually makes it very easy to control how long is spent on science each day. It is also a big help when Amber needs to go back and review a certain thing.
Amber has used Fascinating Biology in the past and other Schoolhouse Review members received the Biology and the Physics. Be sure and click to the Crew Blog and read some other reviews.
